Experience

Summary

I'm an interesting mix … I've worked agency and client sides in both PR and brand marketing, though PR is my sweet spot. I've worked up the ranks from entry level work to now managing teams and leading overall strategies for several types of clients.

What I read

I'm a big fan of inspiring spaces, so I read a lot of interior design blogs/instagram feeds. I'm a newsy, so I read a lot about news and current events, mostly online. I also read (wherever) about trends in my clients' industries, wherever the info lives.

Side projects

I've held board and committee positions with several nonprofits and created signature events, fundraisers, communication strategies and other programs to generate awareness - and more importantly - advocacy for the cause. I want to change the world ;)

Ideal team

I think social interaction for virtual team members is critical. I enjoy being responsible for my own projects and deliverables but enjoy working with others, in smaller groups, to share ideas. I don't need to be managed, and enjoy and ownership.
